About This Walk
A Walk in Old Town Warrenton
Come join us for a stroll through Historic Old Town Warrenton and experience the charm of this hidden gem of a town. Starting on the steps of a 250 year old courthouse which provides a sweeping view of the adjacent valley. Meander the old town area filled with quaint shops and sidewalk cafes. Enjoy a colorful Farmer’s Market cherished by the locals and grab one of their famous breakfast sandwiches! Wander a little further off the downtown area to find a well kept graveyard or a beautiful old railroad bridge now converted into a walking path with a train car still there. Occasionally an antique town trolley will sound a friendly warning bell as it rumbles past… Historic architecture punctuated by modern additions makes this town a fun and vibrant place to photowalk.
This walk can be as long or short as you wish to make it, there’s no exact path but I encourage exploration of the many little side streets and alleyways to find interesting opportunities for shots. There are hills at the Eastern edge of the town, but the main downtown area is level enough to avoid any strenuous uphill walking.
I’m Kirk Nelson, Your Friendly Neighborhood Graphics Geek, and I’ve been a professional graphic designer and photographer for over 20 years. (if you care to check out my website, it’s www.thepixelpro.com) I’ve done several photoshoots on the streets of Old Town Warrenton and I’m excited to share this hidden gem with other photographers.
If there’s enough interest, I might even bring out my signature orange striped couch that is just so much fun to drop into the middle of the street for a quick shot between waves of traffic!
